Firecracker Crispy Marshmallow Pops

by Vaughn Vreeland • from the video Snacks From The 90's You Can Make at Home

Inspired by


for 9 servings

  • 2 ½ cups (150 g) marshmallow
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 8 cups (200 g) puffed rice cereal
  • 2 oz (55 g) fizzy rock candy
  • white chocolate, melted
  • milk chocolate, melted
  • sprinkles, for decorating
  • fizzy rock candy, for decorating


  1. In a large glass bowl, melt the marshmallows and butter in the microwave for 3 minutes. Stir to fully incorporate.
  2. Mix in the puffed rice cereal and stir until evenly coated.
  3. Add the fizzy rock candy and stir until well combined. Be sure to add the candy no sooner than this stage, for it may lose its “pop” if mixed with the hot marshmallow mixture.
  4. Spread the mixture in a 9x9-inch (23x23-cm) pan lined with parchment paper and press down to create an even layer. Top with fizzy rock candy.
  5. Dip 9 straws sticks in a bit of melted white chocolate and place them in 3 even rows across the baking tin.
  6. Let the white chocolate harden at room temperature for 30 minutes or in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.
  7. Remove the parchment paper and cut into 9 equal squares.
  8. Dip the treats into melted milk chocolate going half way up, and decorate with sprinkles and more rock candy.
  9. Place the completed pops on a parchment paper-lined sheet tray and let sit for about an hour until the chocolate is set.
  10. Enjoy!
